Tuesday 6 December 2016 – Classy, exciting, world class and fun were just a few of the terms used by patrons to express their delight with the Rotary Club of Grenada’s Carols by Candlelight fundraiser, holiday event.
Around two thousand patrons attended the annual event, which was hosted once again at the Rotary-operated Quarantine Point national park on Sunday 4December. Visitors to the park, who also sang along with Christmas Carols were dazzled with a magical holiday light display, fun activities for the kids including face painting, Santa’s booth with hundreds of toy giveaways and a bonfire for roasting of S’mores, as well as a wide selection of food ranging from soup to sushi with much in between.
The Motown themed concert, produced by Richardo Keens-Douglas was the highlight of the evening. The quality of the production rivaled that of concerts produced internationally.
